Bobbies — Always on the Job

Alan Johnson was a senior figure in a government which was almost wholly destructive in nature.  Yet, a bit like John Major, he has a certain ineffable quality which makes it hard to muster genuine, personal antipathy towards him.  Indeed, one cannot help but pity his present circumstances, which have seemingly brought about the first genuine resignation from frontline politics for "personal reasons" of the 21st century.


But enough about him.  This blog is more interested in the fate of the suspended constable who now looks to face charges of Misconduct in Public Office.  Given the precedent set by a certain former Deputy Prime Minister, should we expect him to a) be made a peer of the realm, or b) get the sack and lose his pension?

One possible outcome has rather longer odds than the other, I suspect.
